This lasted for about 5 seconds.... then a firery trail fell to the ground. x military college educated x national weather service employee.now a second tier cabinet level government employee. This event had to be observed by at least 50 to 100 cars on the interstate at the time. local radio and t.v. had nothing....This really spooked the family. Further this thing appeared to be in the flight pattter of Will Roger International Airport.
